Did you ever figure out what was causing the bad noise problem from your car? I ask because my wife has heard exactly the same noise from her '95 525. She described it exactly the same way "a piece of metal dragging the ground". The noise she heard though only lasted a couple of seconds, but it did it two days in a row and hasn't done it since. I notice someone mentioned the water pump as a posibility. I just replaced the water pump in my wife's car about 4 weeks ago so I wouldn't expect it to be bad already.
BMW replaced the driveshaft in it a couple of weeks back. She heard the noise a couple of days after that. So I think they are related.

Please let me know if you have learned anything.
